Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital

Tiggywinkles, the world’s busiest wildlife hospital is located in Haddenham, Buckinghamshire.  It is a specialist hospital dedicated to rescuing and treating many species of British wildlife including hedgehogs, wild birds, foxes, badgers and deer.  Those that recover well are released back into the wild and those with injuries that would leave them vulnerable to predators if released, are cared for and looked after by the hospital twenty four hours a day.  The staff  were helpful, knowledgeable and took time out to talk about the various species – they clearly care very much about their patients.  Surprisingly, Tiggywinkles receives no government funding and purely relies on its membership funding and donations from the public.  Admission is a paltry £4.50, which when you consider the worthy work this Hospital carries out is a very small price to pay.  If you can’t visit then why not make a donation via their website at:  http://www.sttiggywinkles.org.uk/
